The 2017 independent review of intelligence: views from The Strategist

07 Sep 2017
Description

The articles reprinted in this report give a range of perspectives on the recent Australian Intelligence Community (AIC) review and its recommendations.

The articles in this report suggest that changes recommended by the review would change the profile of intelligence within the government, giving it a much more prominent place in the Canberra pantheon. And they would more tightly integrate the intelligence functions that reside in government departments outside of the ‘traditional’ agencies (including those in the Australian Federal Police and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection) with the rest of the AIC.

The oversight mechanisms of the AIC would also get a shakeup, with the remit of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security being widened, and the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security being allocated significantly greater resources.
